Spiritual conditioning #2: Boukman’s Prayer

“Good God who created the Sun which shines on us from above, who rouses the sea and makes the thunder rumble; Listen! God though hidden in a cloud watches over us. The god of the whiteman calls forth crime but our God wills good works. Our God who is so good commands us to vengeance.

He will direct our arms and help us. Throw away the likeness of the white man’s god who has so often brought us to tears and listen to the liberty which speaks in all our hearts.”
